Serenity had been divided as far back as the histories tell.
The Aterran settlers live inside the wall with technology. While the native Shadowlanders and the Jaru live outside the wall with none.
Welcome to Serenity.
Ten years have passed since John Tanis tried to kill his best friend Bill Bremmer. Not finishing the job is his only regret. Exiled from Aterra, Tanis has fought for survival and acceptance in the uncivilized Shadowland.
The Shadowlanders and the Jaru live in a perpetual state of war, but when the scattered tribes of the Jaru begin to unite the delicate balance is tipped. Aterra is also suffering, as a native sympathizer uprising decimates cities in a spate of bombing attacks.
Finding technology outside the wall, Tanis is suspicious that his former friend may have a hand in the troubles engulfing his land. He would relish any opportunity to settle that old score, an opportunity that could never happen . . .
Until the day Aterra lost the wall.
Long ago, when the ancients colonized the planet named Serenity, they displaced an indigenous population and constructed a dividing force-field wall. But when an earthquake destroys the power to the protective wall, only three people have the skills to repair it—until the first two disappear en route. Now Hannah, as the last expert, must go. Her journey will take her into a native land engulfed by war between ancient enemies. Along the way, her own perceptions will be changed and she will find herself playing a part in a new rivalry between powerful forces in Shadowland determined at bringing down Aterra and that threaten to rip Shadowland apart.
